There's no place like home

(for the holidays).
Thanksgiving is over, and that, of course, means that the Christmas season has begun.  I've probably heard "There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays" a dozen times already, and it has been running through my head this evening.
Another post-Thanksgiving tradition here is the regular playing of The Wizard of Oz: this year the children have really taken to the movie, and have watched it twice already.  And of course, the final message of the movie is "There's No Place Like Home".
Fittingly, we are trying to figure out our plans for visiting home soon, so that Boo and Skibo can spend time with grandparents, uncles, aunt and cousins.

Yours, with the song stuck in my head,
N.

I remember the annual showing of the Wizard of Oz (pre-VCR's) when I was young. It's been a while since I watched it.... will have to rectify that. I think I need a Dorothy fix.

ps. there IS no place like home. Mine is snowy already. :)

There's no place like home - so true, especially at Christmas, I feel. :-)
